Hello-bird Posted July 14, 2009 Report Share Posted July 14, 2009 Cap - I remember being told about the emergency release... re: pickle the load. As well, I was told of the pilots options in such a situation, which you've clearly listed. If a load does hit hard and the line does stretch this much with the pilot leaning out to this degree, would it not be quite difficult to control the machine/respond quickly appropriately re: emergency release(s) if the initial bounce was quite hard? I also wonder if it would not be quite challenging to be smooth on the controls, as you say, in a situation where the machine might be considered underpowered for such a lift to begin with. (Please forgive my questions if they are ignorant/obvious, because they are not obvious to me.) HB PS... Agreed. Mr. Yearwood is a great contribution to the field. And tends to go above and beyond the call of duty, so to speak, with regards not only to detailed investigation, but also in regards to compassionate (often hours & off the time clock) time spent with grieving family members of deceased. My hat's off to the man. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
